Hello and welcome to Just answer.com, Super mechanic here. About your vehicle.
The thing with that is you will have to start with new pads and then clean all around the steering knuckle and hub. The back of the wheel, (which most techs don't do) and get all of the brake dust off. When you have new pads installed and there is any brake dust from the old ones, it will get into the new pad and impregnate it to where it will become glazed after a few hundred miles or so.
I use a soap and warm water mixture and clean the calipers, mounts, hub, wheels and control arms and then blow it off with compressed air. But, you will want to start with a good brand of brake pads.
Of course, the rotors will have to have a smooth surface, and not be glazed. They should be turned to make them true and have a good smooth surface. If they do measure too thin then they would need to be replaced. You could always get a second opinion if the tech seems shady to you.
